Your thukpa is served!

It was time to try out some of the local cuisine. Aldred (my colleague here at Kasiga School) suggested we go to eat thukpa (also called thuppa). I had never heard of this Nepali dish before and was filled with anticipation.

A short bike ride after school brought us to the joint name “Gurung”. A tiny bamboo cottage with long benches along the walls. In minutes mutton thuppa was served before us. To the untrained connoisseur it may just seem like noodles mixed in soup, but the intricacies involved in preparing it were indeed a sight to behold!

Wouldn’t mind a second helping soon…

Here is the recipe for those who would want to give a shot at cooking it.
